Product Description:

The ultimate authority on soccer in Europe kicks off a completely revised second edition with everything fans want to know about the teams, stars, and coaches. Photos.


Unlike any period before in the history of European football, recent years have seen large numbers of fans of successful teams regularly prepared to invest time and money on a large scale to follow their sides across national borders, in the quest for glory. European Football - A Fans' Handbook by Peterjon Cresswell and Simon Evans is a Rough Guide book aimed at just such people. The latest edition constitutes the third edition of the highly popular format and is fully updated for the 1999-2000 season. As the plethora of new footballing countries has been established in the eastern half of the continent, and as low-cost air travel has made European away fixtures a possibility for die-hard fans, the amount of information required to facilitate the passage of even the most hardy travelling supporter has increased rapidly. This book provides just the sort of intelligence necessary, alongside a wealth of detail on the football scene, at both club and international level, in every European country. Advice for visitors on places to stay, eat and drink, and on transport and ground location in all the major footballing cities makes this an invaluable guide for the travelling fan. And the narrative, which covers the game throughout Europe in a historical and up-to-date fashion, makes this an equally fascinating read for those more inclined towards sticking with their home comforts. -- Trevor Crowe
